Found War Photographs

Over the weekend, I bought a large number of old snapshots at an antique store here in Dallas and have been slowly going through them. I’ve scanned a couple of pics and posted them on my tumblr. They’re mostly military and appear to range from WWI through the Vietnam War. Some are American and some Australian. Yesterday, I discovered some very disturbing pictures of what appear to be civilian massacres in Vietnam. I’m not sure who murdered them, but there were men, women, and children; and soldiers were standing around the periphery looking down on the dead bodies (and body parts.) Very upsetting.
